What is Life on Red Horse Ranch?

Life on Red Horse Ranch successfully combines a genuinely thrilling serial story, with the colorful music of the old west.
  • A vivid moving story filled with suspense that stirs the imagination of every listener.

  • deftly woven into the script is the picturesque music of the open range, by the Texas Rangers, music heard in its natural setting.

Life on Red Horse Ranch has all the elements of a successful radio show:
  • Drama

  • Romance

  • Comedy

  • Music


  • the struggle of old Sam Carter to save Red Horse Ranch from land grabbers.

  • the tense excitement of a deadly fight with cattle rustlers, the perils of the round-up, the sweeping rush of the stampede.


  • the deep affection of Alabam for Rose, lovely daughter of Sam Carter.

  • colorful excitement of the rodeo, with its bull-dogging, bronco-busting, and wild steer riding.


  • the colorful antics of Arizona and the lazy but lovable Cookie.


  • that excites the spirit of adventure in all of us.

  • rattling horn and pounding hoofs in the 'big drive'

  • soothing lullabies of the night herder as he 'beds' down his 'doggies'

  • stirring rhythm of the thundering hoofs at full gallop

  • plaintive songs of the cowboy on the lonely range

  • rugged sentiment of songs around the campfire

  • and the jolly companionship of the bunkhouse symphony.

This is the music of the Texas Rangers around which is built the story of Life on Red Horse Ranch.

NOTE: Updated Release! Many additional episodes included (21-Dec-2011).

sez the show's initial episodes were produced March 1935 and delivered by April of that year. Also has a link to photos of cast members.

Personally, not my kind of variety show -- more into Command Performance or Dinah Shore -- but some of this music is really nice.
